Injecting Urgency into the NATO Debate
May 14, 2012
A new NTI commentary highlights NATO's opportunity to change the nuclear status quo at this week's Chicago Summit, highlighting NTI co-chairman Sam Nunn's recommendations in The Race Between Cooperation and Catastrophe. "Avoiding this issue for the next few years—or even just until the next NATO summit—is more likely to undermine rather than strengthen NATO unity and security," the commentary warns. "If NATO adopts a wait-and-see attitude on this issue at Chicago, NATO’s options are likely to shrink, not expand." This piece was an advertorial published in The National Journal.
